I know, I know….! I have not updated my website in a while, my apologies to those who would like to keep up with what I am doing especially in regard to sports related concussion or traumatic brain injury issues. I promise to do better moving forward….

While I have been active promoting concussion awareness locally in the New York/New Jersey areas, I wanted to share that I recently had the opportunity to travel to Trento, Italy to participate in the Festival of Economics of Trento 2017. This is the 12th year of the Festival that has grown steadily year by year.

My role as a panelist was to share my thoughts on the benefits of sports to promote good health but also point out the hazard of sports related injuries that can have an adverse effect on health short and long term. I was honored to be invited by the festival organizers to share my sports experiences and discuss my thoughts on the short and long term effects of concussions on athletes. I was also honored as many of the Festival’s participants were experts in the field of economics from around the world including some of the leading Economist, University professors and Nobel Prize Recipients.

My session was very well received, well attended and covered by the Italian media, so much so that I was invited by organizers to participate again next year. I am already looking forward to 2018.

Harry Carson, New York Giants Hall Of Fame Linebacker, came to Suffern Middle School on Friday, March 9. Mr. Carson and spoke to Jennie Narcisco’s grade 6 and Russell Rice’s grade 8 classes. In those two sessions, he taled about the 6 Pillars of Character: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, and citizenship.

That day, Suffern Middle School hosted two multipoint videoconference sessions with Mr. Carson for eight schools nationwide in partnership with the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Jerry Csaki facilitated the discussion so that students from each school had a chance to ask questions.
